My favorite period of Univers Zero. Mostly acoustic, but incredibly dark, complex and highly unique!
 
My favorite is the massive Ceux du Dehors that I consider their signature album. Dark and adventurous but incredibly melodic and original stuff.. the omnious and almost bloodthirsty Hèrèsie isn't far behind though..
 
  
 
 
 
 
So what's your personal favorite out of these?

I don't own any of them yet, though at least one has been ordered for Christmas and I may order another, so no vote yet for me...I'll find this poll once I have all of them. Big smile

It's between the first two for me. Going with "Heresie". Love the album cover too.I have that on a t-shirt.

All fantastic. Went for the debut.
Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

Ceux du Dehors - quite simply one of the best albums ever, in any genre. All 3 are excellent, though.

Wow. This is one of the hardest polls in awhile.

All three = Heart but their debut eeks out my favorite spot by just a hair.

All are great, but 1313 is my favourite UZ album.

All three are awesome (as are their next couple albums... actually their entire discography is great). I think they got better with time, and CDD is the best out of these, topped only by Uzed.

Anyone else excited about Clivages?

^ Of course. I haven't heard the samples from it yet (at the UZ homepage) but Im sure it'll be as good as any of their last three. Thumbs Up

I haven't heard Heresie, but I prefer Ceux du Dehors so far.

VERY hard to vote.

For me, it's got to be the self-titled album.
Great poll.

I still need Heresie and I'm waiting for the new re-issue coming out later this year.

Where did you get that album art for Heresie? My copy just has them standing (or sitting) in a swamp, which isn't nearly as cool

^ It's the original album art. The swamp picture however was first used on the CD reissue in 1991 i believe. I don't know why though, as I prefer the original cover myself.

It'll probably be the original on the Wayside re-issue.
As they did with the self-titled, often called 1313 and featuring horrible artwork
